What does an Oi Field Agent Do?
Depending on where your skills and passions lie; an Oi Field Agent could be responsible for undertaking basic data collecting tasks in retail stores or be involved in merchandising new products for big brands. An Oi Field Agent works inside an app which is downloaded on their smart phone. The app is then used to check what jobs are scheduled to be completed for the day, week and even month. These tasks could be as easy as stepping into your local retail store to gather photos, price information and stock availability. When you develop additional skills through Oi Field Sales Training, you can also be assigned tasks for visual merchandising, executing new product launches and planogram implementation. All Oi Field Agents are sales focused however we have dedicated fully trained Oi Field Agents who represent and sell products into retail stores on behalf of brands.
